Why Alliance Weekend?
Alliance Weekend was created to heighten awareness to the ongoing suppression of Indigenous People in Canada, the lands in which we reside.
Thousands of Indigenous People in Canada do not have access to clean water, ongoing GENOCIDE of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, Girls and 2 Spirited Individuals, continuous discoveries of unmarked graves from Residential Schools, Arrests and Violent treatment of Land Defenders, Exorbitant cost of food on reserves, Nature destroyed by Dams, Pipelines, Oil Sands and Industry, Mik’maq Fishing Crisis, Colonization of Traditional Indigenous Ways. We are offering this in respect and alliance for the First Peoples of these lands and to support Indigenous Artisans and Indigenous Initiatives.
As we are initiated to work with medicine from South America, we have also formed alliances with the Matses Tribe and Q’ero Paqos to ensure sacred reciprocity and that medicine is being recollected ethically.
